I mean. Heís not wrong. Elf lawyering around or not, the drama that mob causes is ridiculous.

Going back to Loramin’s point, I do think charming Osargen to dps on goblins is an established normal zone experience on p1999, so trying to deprive someone of their Orsargen would actually be the one causing disruption.

I doubt the staff would take that stance.

If the pet you are charming is from a different camp than the one you are currently killing id assume you would have to pick one or the other. If its from the same camp i dont see an issue.

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.

Me neither, p1999 is generally a 'spirit of the rules' place, not 'rules as written'.

I've seen Rogean himself step into Karnor's Castle and force an enchanter to drop a charmed pet. However, the mob was a Named spawn that can randomly spawn at many places. Since Osargen isn't a rare mob, nor has a loot table, I don't think this would be much of an issue.

Heh ... and they also write down as few rules as they possibly can in the first place: the word "charm" literally doesn't appear anywhere in the Play Nice Policies.

On the one hand, I totally get that the staff does that on purpose, and I don't want to have to read a "big book of elf law" to play either. But at the same time, if you make it harder for players to know the rules, by definition it makes them harder to follow.

When I think back on all the times I had issues with other players (whether or not a /petition was involved), the vast majority were not from someone genuinely trying to break the rules: they were players who misunderstood and thought they were in the right. Based on that, I think this place swings too far toward not writing rules down.

If they did more to iterate on the rules ... for instance, by adding a sentence or two on "how to charm while being respectful of other players" ... I really don't think it would create the "big book of elf law" problem, but it would reduce conflicts between players caused by no one knowing what's expected.
